In a Lewis-Carroll-esque distortion, quarantine transformed each of our domestic spaces into a world unto itself. And so, in concert with Gucci, we solicited an extended network of global photographers to open a window into their own universes, incorporating the heritage label’s latest accessories.
ELOISE PARRY, 31
London, United Kingdom
This picture was taken in my hallway, although it looks like I live in a creepy bed and breakfast. Like every-one else, I’ve spent a good portion of this year at home, restless and keen to make stuff. One thing that really helped combat my boredom was messing around with clothes and make-up and taking pictures, but this time with me as the model.
ZORA SICHER, 25
Brooklyn, New York
There is a narrow fenced patch of grass right next to the F train near my childhood home in Brooklyn. I would pass by it every day on the way to the subway to school. There have clearly been various visitors, creatures, objects left, and graffiti that changes and gets painted over—sometimes tall grass grows, and flowers. It’s always been a curious place to me. There is a door in the fence that allows you to enter. I’ve always wondered if my entering would be considered trespassing. I can’t quite figure out its function, but I always check upon the space. It’s beautiful, strangely located and has become quotidian viewing for me, which should mean that I know it well, but it’s still something of a mystery to me.
ADRIAN FIERRO LARA, 26
Mexico City, Mexico
I had three panic attacks during quarantine. My dog has been such an important part of my mental health and process for getting better, so I took pictures of three dogs I spent time with in quarantine. My boyfriend Te Ariki Alistair Taniwha dressed them, and one of my best friends, Mariana Palacios, did the hair for the little doggies. My mom and my pals Josue and Rene also really helped. Mental health is a really big taboo inMexico. People don’t go to psychological therapy or a psychiatrist because there is this idea that only crazy people have to do it. I am really privileged to have access to mental health care, but it’s kind of a shame that I waited until I had panic attacks to look for help.
KENNY GERMÉ, 46
As a black photographer, Château-d’Eau is the neighbourhood to find hairdressers in Paris, along with beauty and hair products for the Black community. You can’t be Black and ignore this very crowded and lively neighborhood. It’s like a second home. One of the signature elements are the corn sellers. This is truly a postcard—a type of cliché that might not ring a bell for everybody, but that I wanted to depict.
FUMIKO IMANO, 46
For 15 years, I’ve been living at my parents’ house in the countryside, but I always wanted to live by myself. When this pandemic slowed down in Japan, I found this flat in Tokyo. Finally, I have my own place and surroundings. I feel super lonely sometimes, but I’m feeling really good about having freedom to live howI want.
STEPHEN TAYO, 26
Due to the pandemic, I’ve spent the most time in my room photographing myself and objects, as well as doing yoga and a little bit of a workout. I thought it would be nice to create something like a little Gucci world in my room using sheets I bought at the Yaba Market, close to the residence where I live in Lagos, Nigeria. The location (my room) has been the best thing that has happened to me the past few months. I do everything in my room, from reading to editing to conference calls. It’s been my safe space so far.
